1939 ZiS 101 Sport

We bring you probably the best-looking Soviet car of all time – the ZIS 101-Sport. It is based on the equally good-looking ZIS-101 limousine, produced by the Moscow manufacturer from 1936 to 1941. The two-seat 101-Sport was designed in 1939 as a sports version of the luxury 101 and was actually very well received. However, only one or two copies were ever produced, which makes it more of a prototype model, rather than a production car. There’s one more special thing about the 101-Sport – it was designed and produced to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the so-called Konsomol, a political youth organization in the Soviet Union described as the youth division of the Communist Party. The project was approved personally by Stalin, but, sadly, shortly after the celebration it was abandoned.
